A “sensational treat” = “Pere Magloire” in French.

Pere Magloire is a brand of Calvados with a rich history. It was established in 1821, the year when the great Napoleon croaked. By 1900, it was the number one selling Calvados in France. Ah, yeah, what exactly is Calvados, you ask. It's an apple Brandy made exclusively in the Normandy region. The "eau de vie de cidre", as the French call it, is actually distilled cider, which is made from specially grown apples. Not every apple is good enough for this Spirit.

Now, this Calvado comes from Pays d'Auge, where the majority of cider houses of France reside. It's a limited kind of Calvados since there's a ton of requirements and a tight quality control, the Spirit has to be aged at least for two years in oak barrels and cider must ferment at least for six weeks. Quite exclusive stuff right here. What's more, this one is XO, which is the same as "Hors d'Age" or "Napoléon" and means that it's at least six years old. Now, Pere Magloire is a bit of a show off, so they aged it for a decade. And to boast even further: it got a Double Gold at San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2012!

Susanna
Susanna,
The best calvados I have ever tried with a long finishing taste. I really enjoyed this one.

Dustin,
Very smooth at first with a little bite in the middle. The finish was silky and smooth. The apple comes through crisp and clean. One of my favorite calvados.

Lisa,
This was my favorite of the tasting box. So delicious, I was sad when it was gone. Hints of caramel apple. Now added to my wish list.

Bobby,
Apples are a great past time from Grandma’s trees. Cider to hard cider to a brandy that does it justice. Thanks for the memories and more to come.

Alex,
A wonderful apple brandy. The Apple flavor isn’t overpowering, nor overly sweet. I have no doubts about their quality control. Not usually the spirit of choice for me but love French cognacs, and look forward to having it again! A must try for anyone!

Antti,
It is a very good, intense, Apple Brandy with a delicate birth; while an intense life; leads to a sweet & aromatic death of medium length with notes of citrus.

Kevin,
It’s not overly sweet which I appreciate. This has a strong floral smell on the nose and a cider flavor on the tongue in addition to the floral taste. This will be a fall or winter dram for me. It came in a tasting box and although I have determined cognac isn’t my favorite this will be a good one to have on hand. Perhaps as a dessert dram.
